The 27-man group, which is formally a police special operations unit, functions independently from the Ukrainian army and works in close collaboration with the country’s military intelligence, the GUR, which provides them with ammunition and intel. According to The Times, the unit has complete license to select its missions, where it barracks and when it fights.

Adam Kinzinger Linked to Pro-Ukraine Organization Which Allegedly Scammed People Out of Millions of Dollars | 26 March 2023 | RINO Adam Kinzinger might be in serious hot water because a Ukraine-centered non-profit he is a board member of is being accused of scamming people out of millions of dollars. As reported by the Post Millennial, the story starts with a man named James Vasquez who formerly worked for Ripley’s Heroes. Vasquez boasted about joining the Ukraine army in 2022 to fight the Russians and bragged about his supposed exploits, including “taking out seven Russian tanks.” This caught Kinzinger’s attention and he started promoting Vasquez. He urged Twitter to verify his account and posed together with the supposed hero. There was just one problem: Vasquez lied about everything. Now Ripley’s Heroes is being investigated by the federal government.

Netanyahu suspends judicial reform –The move comes after months-long protests across Israel | 27 March 2023 | Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced the suspension of the controversial judicial overhaul, after months of massive nationwide demonstrations. In a statement on Monday evening, Netanyahu said that he ordered a “timeout” on the controversial legislation until after the Knesset recess, in order “to give a real opportunity for real dialogue.” He condemned “a minority of extremists that are willing to tear our country to shreds, leading us to civil war and calling for refusal of army service,” which he called “a terrible crime.” The announcement comes after Netanyahu fired his defense minister, Yoav Gallant, who challenged the reform, arguing that it threatens national security. The move added fuel to the protests, with hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets across the country.

Delaware River spill: Philadelphia water safe to drink through Monday evening at 11:59 p.m. [What happens to the water at midnight?] | 27 March 2023 | The Philadelphia Water Department is now encouraging residents to store tap water — instead of buying bottled water in stores — after hazardous materials spilled into the Delaware River. The recommendation comes after officials said Sunday afternoon that water in the city will remain safe to drink through Monday evening at 11:59 p.m. “We advise people that they can drink their tap water. There’s no need to buy water.” Mike Carroll, deputy managing director for the city’s Office of Transportation, Infrastructure and Sustainability [?] said in a virtual news conference Sunday evening. “If they want to store water, they should store water from their tap in a bottle or pitcher and they can stick it in their fridge or refrigerator and it will be fine for them to drink” It’s the latest in a series of updates after residents were advised just hours earlier to drink bottled water until further notice after an estimated 8,000 gallons of a latex-based solution spilled into Otter Creek from a plant in Bucks County. The plant makes acrylic resins, which are often used in paints to prevent corrosion, and weather-proof manufactured items like cars.
Another U.S. chemical train derails –At least eight freight trains have crashed across the country since the beginning of February | 27 March 2023 | A Canadian Pacific Railway freight train derailed in North Dakota on Sunday, spilling hazardous liquid asphalt from containers. The crash is the latest in a spate of derailments across the U.S., one of which caused a devastating release of toxic chemicals. The incident took place near the town of Wyndmere shortly after 11pm on Sunday night, a Canadian Pacific spokesman told local media. Richland County Emergency Manager Brett Lambrecht said that 31 cars of the 70-car train left the track, some of which were carrying liquid asphalt. Liquid asphalt is a flammable petroleum-based product, but Lambrecht said that cold temperatures will allow the material to solidify and reduce the chance of fire.

The damage is extensive. Officials say RM Palmer Building #2 is destroyed and there’s damage at the neighboring Palmer building #1.

New York Close to Passing Statewide Gas Stove Ban on New Homes | 26 March 2023 | New York state is reportedly close to enacting the nation’s first legislative ban on gas stoves for most new construction, including single-family homes and commercial buildings. Amid a statewide uproar over the plan, the Democrat-led state legislature is set to advance the move as part of Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul’s 227 billion budget blueprint… If passed as is, the measure would prohibit the installation of “fossil fuel equipment” and building systems in the construction of new one-family and smaller multi-family homes, beginning on Dec. 31, 2025. The same prohibition would apply to new larger multi-family homes and commercial buildings starting on Dec. 31, 2028… Rep. Nick Langworthy (R-N.Y.), who chairs the New York State Republican Committee, called Hochul a hypocrite for not getting rid of gas stoves in her home in Buffalo and the governor’s mansion in Albany. “Is it any surprise that Queen Kathy cooks on her gas stove when she flies around on private planes? New Yorkers are so sick of phony climate-warrior hypocrites and their ‘rules for thee but not for me,'” the congressman told the New York Post in January. “Our state is in a crime and economic free fall and she’s waging war on appliances.
Arizona Supreme Court Breathes New Life Into Key Part of Kari Lake’s Election Lawsuit | 23 March 2023 | The Arizona Supreme Court has sent a key part of Kari Lake’s election lawsuit back to trial court for review, breathing new life into the former gubernatorial candidate’s legal challenge to the outcome that she says was unfair. In an order issued on March 22, the Arizona Supreme Court directed the trial court to review a key claim related to signature verification procedures on early ballots in Maricopa County, reviving Lake’s hopes in her election challenge. “The signature verification process in Maricopa County is a house of cards. Thanks to this ruling, my team will get the chance to topple it,” Lake said in a statement expressing satisfaction with the ruling… In her complaint to the Arizona Supreme Court, Lake raised seven legal issues with the request for review, including the allegation that 35,563 “unaccounted for ballots” were intermingled with other ballots at a processing facility and that procedures on testing tabulating machines weren’t followed, and so the results of the election were at the very least “uncertain.”
Federal judge blocks key parts of California handgun law | 21 March 2023 | A federal judge on Monday blocked key provisions of a California law that drastically restricts the sale of new handguns in the state, saying parts of the legislation violate the Second Amendment. A lawsuit challenging the law was filed last year by the California Rifle & Pistol Association and other gun rights supporters following a landmark 2022 decision from the U.S. Supreme Court that set new standards for evaluating firearm restrictions. The ruling left many laws aimed at regulating and limiting the sale and use of guns — in California and nationwide — at risk of being struck down. U.S. District Court Judge Cormac Carney, sitting in Santa Ana, wrote Monday that California’s requirements for new handguns are unconstitutional and cannot be enforced.  
With His First Veto, Biden Puts Woke Capitalism Before American Workers and Retirees | 27 March 2023 | Joe Biden issued his first veto against a bipartisan bill that sought to protect millions of Americans’ retirement plans from woke investments. His action shows he prioritizes politics over Americans’ financial security. Early this month, the U.S. House and Senate passed a bipartisan resolution to prevent fiduciaries of retirement plans from subordinating financial returns to woke causes. Biden chose to ignore all the concerns and warnings, including those from his own party. Instead, he used his first veto to preserve a so-called environmental, social, and governance, or ESG, rule that his administration adopted last year. His action confirms that despite his rhetoric of bipartisanship, he is an inflexible politician.
Biden issues first veto as president, blocks measure by Congress on ‘woke’ investment | 21 March 2023 | Joe Biden issued his first veto Monday after Congress voted to block a Labor Department rule allowing retirement plans to weigh the long-term impacts of social factors and climate change on investments — a move Republicans say is a “woke” policy that hurts retirees’ pockets. Senate Republicans, along with two Democrats, voted on the measure March 1, needing only a simple majority for it to pass. Sens. Jon Tester, D-Mont., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., voted with Republicans. Ahead of the bill going to his desk, Biden said he would veto it. A two-thirds majority of Congress would be needed to override Biden’s veto.

Professor Suspended After Writing That Killing ‘Right-Wing’ Speakers Is ‘Admirable’ | 27 March 2023 | A Wayne State University (WSU) professor was suspended with pay after writing on Facebook that it is more “admirable” to kill a right-wing speaker than it is to shout them down on a college campus, The New Guard reported. Steven Shaviro, a College of Liberal Arts and Sciences professor, wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday that while he does not “advocating violating federal and state criminal codes,” it is “far more admirable to kill a racist, homophobic, or transphobic speaker than it is to shout them down,” according to the New Guard. The professor was reportedly placed on leave and the incident was reported to law enforcement agencies for review.

The envelope delivered by the U.S. Postal Service Friday has been “deemed non-hazardous” at the scene, the mail room to the DA’s office, officials told Fox News. Police responded to the scene shortly after 12 p.m…
Texas authorities say at least 2 migrants dead, over a dozen injured after ‘suffocating’ in train car | 24 March 2023 | At least two migrants have died and 15 were in need of “immediate medial attention” after they were found “suffocating” in a train car near a small Texas town in Uvalde County Friday afternoon, authorities said. The Uvalde Police Department said it received a 911 call just before 4 p.m. from someone who said there were “numerous undocumented immigrants ‘suffocating’ inside a train car,” adding that the U.S. Border Patrol was informed and was able to stop the train two to three miles east of Knippa, Texas. The incident is suspected to be related to human smuggling, sources said. 
‘There’s nothing left’: Deep South tornadoes kill 26 –The tornado received a preliminary EF-4 rating, the National Weather Service office in Jackson said late Saturday in a tweet. | 25 March 2023 | Rescuers raced Saturday to search for survivors and help hundreds of people left homeless after a powerful tornado cut a devastating path through Mississippi, killing at least 25 people, injuring dozens, and flattening entire blocks as it carved a path of destruction for more than an hour. One person was killed in Alabama. The tornado devastated a swath of the Mississippi Delta town of Rolling Fork, reducing homes to piles of rubble, flipping cars on their sides and toppling the town’s water tower. Residents hunkered down in bath tubs and hallways during Friday night’s storm and later broke into a John Deere store that they converted into a triage center for the wounded. “There’s nothing left,” said Wonder Bolden, holding her granddaughter, Journey, while standing outside the remnants of her mother’s now-leveled mobile home in Rolling Fork. “There’s just the breeze that’s running, going through — just nothing.”
